You're getting faulty readings, I'm guessing. I'm glad, my Zalman is 44C load.

Make sure you press the pins that mount the HSF all the way down.

To stress test, run 3 instanced of Prime95. One using "blend" torture test, one "small fft" and one "large fft". And play a game at the same time. This will give you much higher temps than just running 2 instances of Prime95

there are if you use it on certain cpu's. amd x2's have the little rocker bracket.
but an intel, like a c2d....it has pins that hold it on.
not sure about the older pentiums, but i am fairly certain they are the same.

view the SWF movie at the top, it's a bracket that holds it in place...

yeah, i know its a bracket. what we, or at least i, are/am talking about when i say "pins" are the four corners of that bracket that hold it tightly to the motherboard by attaching in the rear to another support bracket. it shows four little screws in the picture in above link...and i was under the impression that it was held on by little plastic retention clips that push through the bracket and secure it to the motherboard. so, if it doesnt have said plastic retention clips, i would be talking about the four screws. ie are they tightened down completely? if they are not, then the hsf is not making good contact with your cpu. that make sense?

yes, that all makes sense.

The bracket only has two screws, the mount to the MB has 4, i made sure they were all as tight as could be...
